Animals in Art

In the first week of January we learned about Animals in Art. Using our textbook, a slideshow of examples and class discussion we prepared ourselves to create some animal art.

  • We learned how artists have been using animals as subjects since the early cave paintings.
  • We discussed how artists can show MOOD in a piece of art. Some of the examples included humor, anticipation, dreamy, playful and sad.
  • We learned how artists will use EMPHASIS in a painting to make one part more important than other parts. They can use LINE, COLOR or SHAPE to draw your eye to the important part.
